A spokesperson for the VTA on Friday responded to questions about whether Cassidy ever asked employees to do anything uncomfortable or did something, saying the authority was reviewing all records related to Cassidy.
The gunman’s father said on Friday that he had seen his son just two days before the attack and was blinded by what happened.
The father told the outlet that there was “no indication” of what his son had planned, adding that he had not seen Samuel Cassidy who often and rarely heard him complaining about anything. .
However, his father said that his son was suffering from bipolar disorder, although this was “no excuse” for what happened. The gunman’s father did not indicate whether he was diagnosed with the disorder or whether he had ever been treated.
Aligning with the memo’s content picture, law enforcement has so far portrayed a man who hates against working people for a decade.
As Cassidy shot nine other employees before he died, witnesses say he targeted specific people. Sheriff Smith said Cassidy told at least one person “I’m not going to shoot you” before shooting the others.
